Luke 22 ©
The chief priests and scribes conspire against Christ: Judas covenanteth to betray him. The apostles sent to prepare the passover: Christ eateth it with them; and instituteth his last supper: he covertly pointeth out the traitor: checketh the ambitious strife of his disciples, and promiseth them a share in his kingdom: he telleth Peter of Satan's desire to sift him; he adviseth his disciples to provide necessaries and a sword: his agony and prayer in the garden: he is betrayed; healeth a servant of the high priest, whose ear was cut off; is led to the high priest's house; Peter thrice denieth him. Christ is scornfully used; and brought before the council, where confessing himself to be the Son of God, he is pronounced guilty of blasphemy.
And the chief priests and scribes sought how they might kill him; bfor they feared the people.
And he promised, and sought opportunity to betray him unto them 1in the absence of the multitude.
And they said unto him, Where wilt thou that we prepare?
And he shall shew you a large upper room furnished: there make ready.
And he said unto them, 2With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer:
¶sAnd he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This tis my body which is given for you: uthis do in remembrance of me.
And he said unto them, The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.
Saying, Father, if thou be 3willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
And when he rose up from prayer, and was come to his disciples, he found them sleeping for sorrow,
But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?
When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite cwith the sword?
And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he etouched his ear, and healed him.
When I was hdaily with you in the temple, ye stretched forth no hands against me: but this is iyour hour, and jthe power of darkness.
And Peter said, Man, I know not what thou sayest. And immediately, while he yet spake, the cock crew.
And when they had blindfolded him, they struck him on the face, and asked him, saying, Prophesy, who is it that smote thee?
And many other things blasphemously spake they against him.
And if I also ask you, ye will not answer me, nor let me go.
And they said, *What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
